Welcome to ‘The 12’
The seeds of ‘The 12’ were planted in February 2011 and began to emerge on 12th December 2012 (12/12/12), following the commissioning in St Patrick’s Cathedral Armagh by Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop Emeritus of Armagh. It is only now in September 2015 that we have finally stepped into the world wide arena. Whether you have clicked on to us by accident or Providence, or have heard about us, please stay for a while and check us out.
From the time of our commissioning until now, the most remarkable Catholic Church event was the year of the ‘Two Popes’ with the resignation of Pope Benedict 16th in February 2013 and the elevation of Pope Francis in March 2013. We believe that the spirituality of these two Pontiffs merges beautifully into the hopes and dreams of ‘The 12’.
Check out – Who we are, What we do and how the Lord has been guiding us in the vast ocean, called the ‘New Evangelisation’.
“The New Evangelisation calls for personal involvement on the part of each of the baptised. Every Christian is challenged here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelisation.” (Evangelii Gaudium: 120)
